The star then sent presenter Alison into fits of giggles with the joke as they had a good laugh together.

Elsewhere during the interview Alison pretended to be fuming that she didn’t get an invite to host the awards.

To which rebel replied: ‘I heard that they didn’t have anyone funny in Britain so they flew in an Australian.

‘Why I was she chosen I don’t know. I have presented awards before at the BAFTAs and it’s gone pretty well.

‘It’s hard when you’re the host because you’re in charge of the whole show you’ve got the whole responsibility. You want to have a good show.’ 

Alison then asked her: ‘I heard you want to bond with Daniel Craig, is that right?’

Rebel replied: ‘Well.. shall we make that public? I think he is married technically… I can still do a little cheeky flirt or something?’

Alison then let Rebel hold This Morning’s Special Award Bafta award to feel the weight, Rebel said, ‘I’d love to do an acceptance rap if I ever won one for real!’
